Choose and produce an equivalent form of an expression to reveal and explain
properties of the quantity represented by the expression.
a. Factor a quadratic expression to reveal the zeros of the function it
b. Complete the square in a quadratic expression to reveal the maximum or
minimum value of the function it defines. (see
c. Use the properties of exponents to transform expressions for exponential
functions. For example the expression 1.15t can be rewritten as
(1.151/12)12t = 1.01212t to reveal the
approximate equivalent monthly interest rate if the annual rate is 15%.
